Abstract

Establishment of the so-called therapeutic contract (i.e. negotiation of shared expectations of therapy, during the first session) is regarded as one of the therapist's crucial tasks. The authors discuss difficulties encountered in therapy of a case in which a series of sessions were held against the general rule, i.e. despite the lack of a therapeutic contract.
